This week we saw two Test matches test matches ending in a draw, both ended early due to the soggy outfield. We just saw a match of 22 overs between India and West Indies whereas just 100 overs were possible in the contest between New Zealand and South Africa. The’WET’ outfield was the culprit on both the occasions.

The shocking part wa that even four-day o sunshine was not enough to dry up the ground at Queens park. Soon after both the incidents, The International Cricket Council (ICC) took into consideration both the events and asked for a report from match referees. Both the match referees viz Ranjan Madugalle and Andy Pycroft have termed outfield as ‘POOR’. The former was officiating in the India Vss West Indies contest whereas the latter was officiating in the contest between South Africa and New Zealand. Both the referees have raised and expressed concern over the quality of the outfield.

Both the boards will now submit their responses to the ICC and ICC’s General Manager of Cricket, Geoff Allardice, and Mr Madugalle will assess the reply from south African Board whereas Mr Allardice and David Boon will look into reply from WICB in accordance with clause 4 of the rule book.
